preventing people that are actively sick with ebola from getting on an airplane or when people are screened when they arrive in country, it represents them from mingling into the country if in fact they have fever. it's one of the early and most important signs of ebola. but it's a long 21 day incubation period so someone that is exposed to the virus who may not be ill, is not going to be detected through an airport scanning process that is why airport screening is an imperfect way of stopping the spread of this virus. and because there could be folks exposed. i know in the west african current there is high transmission, people are being interviewed if they had exposure to an ill person technically they are not allowed on the plane, and if they live in a care where they have access to
